Malia Obama Hilariously Clowned David Letterman At A White House Party

Barack Obama with David Letterman

Netflix has found a prestigious new showcase for recently-retired talk show veteran David Letterman. They're pretending they can't see me in the back sniffling.

"There may be some setbacks, some delays, some interruptions, but if you take a long hard look we will get there", he said.

This new Letterman is here to bring you down. His spectacles are pushed up on his forehead.

At the time he left The Late Show on CBS in May 2015, that's not how either he or the network described it.

Damn, Malia! Letterman needed some ice for that burn.

Letterman, who has thus far committed to six episodes (releasing monthly), began his latest venture by sitting down with former president Barack Obama.

While Obama was struggling with a desk lamp, the rest of the family was hard at work getting Malia's dorm ready, especially Michelle, who channeled her inner Mom from "Dexter's Laboratory".

Which would be fine if they were chitchatting privately in a restaurant.

The episode concludes with Obama and Letterman staging themselves walking offstage together so that the cameras can catch "a shot of us walking into the sunset together".

The Versace Family is Pretty Mad About FX's 'American Crime Story'
Versace's family, who lived and worked closely with him and were in the best position to know the facts of his life". On Tuesday, Murphy told EW, "The Versace family has said it's a work of fiction - it is not a work of fiction".

The three-plus decades Letterman spent in late night serve him well in this setting, both as a listener and in the rapport he has developed with these newsmakers. He needs a security blanket.

"We went to Japan, had not been to Japan before".

"Both men seem rusty at the art of banter", Stuever wrote. In fact, just minutes into the new Netflix series "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman", it will feel like old - and arguably better - times.

Yes. Another challenge is in understanding what makes for good viewing.

UPDATED at 2:21 p.m. CST on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, to add more information about David Letterman's interview with John Lewis. There was a lengthy discussion about Obama's Dreams from My Father, a book published in 1995.

The audience laughs at the mention of Fox, as if it's meant as a humorous dig, but Obama goes on to argue the importance of accurate news reporting as an antidote to the current reality that too many Americans live in "a bubble" of their own biases. For instance, Letterman asked about readjusting to civilian life, and contrasted Obama's newfound hobbies with his own ("You're hang-gliding, you're climbing volcanoes, you're wind-surfing, you're wrestling sharks, you're on somebody's private island... and I'm at Bed, Bath and Beyond picking out hangers"). "Let's talk about something else". Just think: a whole hour of new Obama content awaits us all. Did you take a deliberate break with the wife and son?

The irony is that last jab is the kind of thing Letterman might have asked a guest back in his heyday.

Free to be whatever he wants in front of the camera now, Letterman opts for befuddled pussycat rather than old lion. (He'd quickly have to overcome his reluctance to speak about the current President.) I'm already picturing his interview with Hillary Clinton, perhaps a pair of tumblers on a glass-top between them.
